    Youtube standard will sometimes play on my wii and sometimes not (without any warning). Haven't tried the XL version yet.

    I can play them fine, it's playing them well that I have problems with. Super slow, and even when I let it buffer all the way the videos are choppy. And this is with Comcast high-speed internet, the fastest kind in Florida. >.> Other people have similar problems and it kind of irritates me seeing as I could play them somewhat decently on my PS3. Hard to make the Wii my favorite console when online isn't the best. Take SSBB for example. What's up with not being able to see each others names? And the slow response to button pressing? Nintendo needs to clean this mess up =P

    1. Set your Wii with a Static IP address.
    2. Use Open DNS as your DNS
    3. Set your MTU size to 0 which means auto.
    4. Put your Wii on the DMZ within your router.

    Lol unfortunately I'm a noob at all that XD. Static IP? How would I find DNS or MTU or DMZ?

    Setting up Wii:

    1) Go to Wii Settings.
    2) Click on Internet.
    3) Click on Connection Settings.
    4) Click your Connection and method of connection.
    5) Click on Manual setup.
    6) If wireless then enter or select your SSID and enter your wep/wap key.
    7) At the Auto-Obtain IP address select NO and then Advance Settings.
    8) Enter the following:
    IP: 192.168.1.10
    Subnet: 255.255.255.0
    Gateway: 192.168.1.1
    DNS: Primary 208.67.222.222, Secondary 208.67.220.220
    MTU 0
    9) Click Save and then OK.
    10) Test Connection.

    Try this first before we get to the router setup. What model Netgear do you have? Please list full model number with version.

    ^ Thanks dude, the little setup you gave me worked great, still kinda hard to get Youtube running properly but when the videos aren't slow or choppy anymore :). Have yet to check out the online on SSBB but I'm sure it'll be better now. Again thanks and hope people with the same problem I had see your post.

    To further improve your connection you'll want to put your Wii on the DMZ within your router.

    List your router model number and also include what version it is.

    Alright, it's a RangeMax Wireless router WPN824v3. Idk if the RangeMax part matters because it's NETGEAR, but it said RangeMax nonetheless o_O

    Use a computer that is connected to your network.

    1) Open your browser and type in 192.168.1.1 and hit enter.
    2) Enter user and password (default is user: admin and password: password)
    3) Under advance select WAN Setup.
    4) Type in the Wii IP address 192.168.1.10 in the DMZ.
    5) Check the box on Default DMZ Server, and click apply.

    Your all done. Hope this helps as my memory of the Netgear router is vague.

    Let me know if this helps.

    Dude your a life saver. Thanks a lot for this guide, if it weren't for you I'd have given up on the Wii's online capabilities within the week. Now if there was just a fix for the friend code system...
    Haha nah the friend code thing isn't horrible. Anyways thanks again ^^
